The year is 2314. Archaeologists have discovered a 300-year-old colony in what used to be called North America. You are invited to the opening night gala exhibition of the artifacts they uncovered. Move freely through exhibits, life-size dioramas, and reenactments of the daily life, rituals and battles of the “Ancients.” This mind-bending interactive theatrical event allows you to see today through the cracked lens of tomorrow.

Relics is an hour-long on-your-feet performance throughout the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio and its lobby. Wear comfortable footwear, as for a museum exhibition, and prepare to explore!
